LIVER AND KIDNEY TROUBLE Cured by Dr. Greene's Nervura Blood and Nerve Remedy. Mrs. S. R. Berry, Lebanon, N. H., says :— " I could not sleep nights and tbe chills or shaking would follow, and I could do but very little of anything. I had to lie dawn a great deal, and my nerves were very weak and of no use. There was a terrible, pain in my head, and I was almost a complete wieckgof my former self. I was depressed in mind ana spirits. My liver was swollen and my kid neys were very bad. *' I used Dr. Nervura blood and nerve remedy, and 1 will say that this wonder ful medicine is the greatest blessing that ever came into a family. MRS. 8. B. BERRY. " It has done perfect wonders forme. After taking two bottles I could do more work than I had for over a year, and now I can eat better than ever, am strong again and have got back my former looks and good color."

HARE AND HOUNDS. Over arch and lattice and trellis the heavy headed blooms rioted in a bewil derment of pink and white, crimson and cream, forming a glorious canopy above the severely trimmed rosebushes that glowed like gigantic bouquets on either side of the winding paths. I But Enid Fitz Roy saw neither the j flowers about her, nor the surrounding woods, nor the clear summer sky above i?all and slender, she stood like a among the roses, with the folds | muslin frock falling straightly j aer, and her fair face somber and A beneath the wide brim of her I hat. She was a very pretty girl ould have been a very happy one, jpiness ought to be the natural. cc of beauty and wealth, oval of her face, that should have Teathed in smiles, was pale and The small, curved month was 1 together in an effort to suppress lish desire to cry. The sweet eyes lidden by the white, lowered lids lef sorrow or indifference, while the full throated birds sang on and the treses swung like perfumed censers c light air. m could she heed or care for birds owers, when her whole heart was r in the dim library of the old man behind her, when her brain ached ie effort to guess at the words and gestures that were passing there among the frowning family portraits and the great oak bookcases, for at that moment Dick Lindsay was telling his loves and hopes to Lord Hunston, the stern man whom fate had given her for an uncle and a guardian. Enid's fond heart told her what her lover would say, how hard he would plead, how handsome he would look, but—her uncle? Would he relax, would he permit himself to be moved, would he—consent? And in the effort to materialize the f aroff scene Enid grew pale and trembled like a wind tossed Hurried footsteps among the roses roused her from her reverie at last, and, j turning, she saw her lover speeding to ward her. "Dick!'.' she cried in welcome, run ning to him and with her set face break ing into joyous smiles. Then a little moan escaped her, and she grew white as her gown, for one glance at Dick Lindsay's eyes told her he had failed "Darling, at first I hoped for suc cess," said Dick when Enid had regain ed some degree of self control and the lovers had wandered from among the jarring flare of the brilliant fleer gar den in the friendly shadows of the wood. "Your uncle heard me without inter ruption and even smiled once or twice. I told him of my prospects, how the mortgage was nearly paid off the Knoll, and how I should be able to live there in another year. I referred him to Tape son and Jenkins that he might verify my statement as to how well the farms were let. I proved to him that I was financially in a position to aspire to your hand, filled with fortune's gift as it is." "And he said"— murmured Enid, lifting her tear washed eyes to Dick's handsome face. I 'He said—nothing. That was the rst part of it, Enid. If he had only anced arguments, I might have de ted them, if he had given an opinion dght have challenged it. But he gave no loophole for speech. He unlocked a small drawer in his bureau—you know the one that has carved goblins' heads all over it—and pulled out from amid a sheaf of papers one that was folded twice and was tied with tape." "I know—l know; the copy of my father's will," cried Enid, "made be "He opened the paper and pushed it across the bureau to me, marking with a nail dent the passage I should read " "Oh, don't repeat it; don't say it!" wailed the girl, putting her hands over her ears, as though to shut out hated sounds. ' 'Don't I know too well that my marriage was fixed for me from the be ginning, and that my father, on his deathbed, willed that if his only and posthumous child should be a daughter she should, on her twenty-first birthday, be affianced to the only son of his dear est friend, Lord Errington? Oh, it was a cruel thing to da " "Crneler still, my darling, to ordain that if at the date of your majority Lionel Errington were alive and unmar ried, and you should refuse to become his wife, you should be deprived of your inheritance for five years and should even not be allowed to live in your own house. Those shameful paragraphs were all my answer. Your uncle then bowed me from tho Boom, only sarcastically begging my presence at your birthday ball next week, during which he intends to announce your engagement to young Errington." A hot flush stained Enid's white skin and dried the tears on her cheeks as she drew herself from Dick's encircling arms and faced him in the narrow path "Dick Lindsay, when, six months ago, I gave yon my heart and my love, I gave them for all time, and not to take them back at the written word of a man whom I never knew, who was dead be fore I lived On my birthday I will, if ids be, leave Gardenhurst and go out o the world to earn my livelihood til the time of JDS' probation is past. 11 say now, as I have said before, I 11 marry" no man but you—if you will re me, Dick." Eter voice, which had rung out so ively, quivered and broke, and she put out two trembling hands to her lov er and crept to his heart like a tired j As he soothed her the distant, roar of a gong tbiUled-tbrough the quiet woods. "Imust go," sighed the girl. "One more week of this life, and then—then I shall be free! Ah, don't look at that, Dick! I mean what I say. I shall be ready to leave this place in a week." "But, Enid, my love, where will you go? What will become of you?" She shook her blond head "I don't quite know. I must think." Dick Lindsay fixed his dark eyes in tently on her for a moment, as he I thought h6 would read her very soul ~ "Dearest, is there any one about yon who is trustworthy—who will give you a letter if I write one?" "Susan Ramsdale, my maid, is hon i est and loves me. Send to me through j A moment later Enid's white gown was fluttering over the lawns and ter races homeward. Miss Fitz Roy's majority was being celebrated in a truly seigneurial f ash ! ion. From early morning the shows and j entertainments in the park had been pat ronized by cuawds of friends and ten ants. The midday dinner, accompanied by • speeches and presentations, was a huge success. In the afternoon the ter races about the house blossomed like a parterre with the light frocks of the "county," who came to witness a bi cycling gymkhana, which at the last moment had been organized by the her roine of the day. The racing was excellent, the prizes charming, and all the company were bi cycle mad, when a rumor ran round that a paper chase, with the beautiful Miss Fitz Roy as hare, would wind up the afternoon's proceedings. The idea wa« received with delight, and Enid might chase'Ber had" she sb'wTllear WHh'pwt ty obstinacy, she persisted herself in choosing the pack, and with infinite taste shared the honors among hex friends-tod tenants alike. Bat at the last moment she exercised her sex's pre- j rogative and entertained a caprice. She would have a companion hare, a man, and that her choice might not be invidi- j ous she would draw the name of the hare that was to be from among the , hounds that were. Pencils and paper and a hat were instantly in demand ' 'What freaks Enid has, to be sore!" said Lady Hnnston to her lord as plow boys and gentlemen alike dropped the folded papers in the hat Enid held. "It will be Errington's business to check them," growled his lordship. "Which of the lads is that?" he went on as a redheaded yokel slouched past Enid in the immediate wake of the at tenuated and mincing Lionel. "One of Wilson's new hands, perhaps. I heard he had, several. Dear me, how Enid does overdo things, to be sure! She's as white as a ghost. She'll look a fright tonight." And, indeed, as Miss Fitz Boy plunged her hand into the hat and drew out a scrap of paper she turned deathly pale. Scarcely glancing at 'it, she said in a low voice, "Isaac Clay." "Isaac Clay! Who is he?" cried every one. And then a mighty laugh rose from the merry crowd and even Enid's white lips smiled as the awkward figure of "Wilson's new hand" pushed shyly to the front.. "What a hare I He won't get to lodge gates,'' laughed every one as the bag of torn paper was slung across the lad's back. - "Seven minutes' start!" cried Enid as she sprang into the saddle and sped round the angle of the house, with her companion hare wobbling after her. And in that time hounds were after her, amid the cheers of the crowd and sundry minor mishaps. At the lodge gates Lionel Errington, in spite of the white paper going both ways, turned sharp to the left. "Miss Fitz Boy won't try Bluebell hill, I know," he called to those behind him, who were all game for a spin along the flat Clevely road. For some five miles the paper track was clear, then suddenly came to an end. "It's a trap, of course," said Lionel, who was too warm raid was getting cross. "She'll start it again farther on.'' But "farther on" there was no wel come "spore," and eight miles from home hounds had to confess themselves baffled. ' 'If Enid tried the hill at all, it must have been to shake off that lout," said Lionel sulkily, turning back. ] "But how did the paper come on this road, then?" cried Lady May Saville. She was a pretty little girl, but Er rington was in too bad a humor to an swer her. Yet as-he pedaled up to Gar denhurst once more he forced some cheeriness in his voice as he cried,. "Hares have won!" "But vfbere are they?" demanded Lord Hunston. "Isn't the yokel smashed up?" tittered one fair dame. "Where's Enid hiding?" cried Lady Hunston. "Herlrike's not among the rest." "Has an accident happened?" "Follow the track down Bluebell hill." But neither heiress, yokel nor bicycles were found that night, and the_ second paper track proved far shorter than the first. In a quiet Kensington drawing room that evening sat three people—an old lady, a girl and a young gentleman. On a chair lay a countryman's smock and a carroty wig- The old lady was wiping her eyes. She had laughed until she had cried. Presently she left the two young people alone. "How well you managed!" said tlje girl, smoothing the ruffled hair of her companion. ' . "And how brave you have been, dar ling! But was it not lucky I thought of papering the Clevely road every one was busy in the park?" Enid blushed ' 'And wasn't it wicked of hie not to have read out the real name on the paper I drew?" She gave Dick the crumpled slip. ' 'Lionel Errington 1 How that would have upset our plans," laughed Dick, * 'for my aunt would never have received him as she has me—and hfcWmme is not on the special license."—Exchange.

Spring stnd Summer Materials - Independ ent Waists—Skirts-Out Door Garment*. And AssocltUon—Sew Millinery— Notes. A leading style ia semi transparent summer goods, shows thin ecru linen traversed by brocaded satin stripes in different colors. Less expensive ma teriala on the same order, are in ecru cotton varied by white or colored lace stripes and both features appear io plaids of either cotton or Jinen in ecru shades Grenadines in great variety, foll'-w similar patterns and in the handsomer classes, are added toby flue beads that oblong and flat, are woven in arid thus remain firm and a part of the fabric on which they glitter. MIXED WOOLS are often extremely stylish in Loose weave' and extraordinary assembling of colors *i:Ht at times in a jumble of hues and rough surfaced, are too bold for any tsu! the tali aud slender, ladies of more taste, can choose less pronounced goods on the same order, whipcord or flue plain cloth but the last named is better wear for those who can jiff-.f! i-bunge of Kirmeiits. than persons whose one thick out door dress, must undergo hard usage. For such, mixed cloth ie altogether the better selection. Taffeta silk will once more lead for those light, cool gowns that are a joy tq,the feminine heart, but In dia tilks are. shown in such numbers and at surd) attractive prices tbat they must fiud wearers. INDEPENDENT WAISTS are again a mighty ho3t and in spite of every adverse criticism or prophecy, will be an important, because a most useful element in summer outfits. Shirt waists in washable goods, are a legion, but the sleeves while still quite full at the top, are cut somewhat close below the elbow or are confined by rows of lengthwise tucks that reach from the cuffs to the-elbow- Thus it wiil be easy to re model the bishop sleeves of inst season, either by slight sha pi ng a nd i> v tucks as well, if thought prtferable Silk waists likewise, are destined to play an important part and the pr-uy s . Ie of overdraping by chif fon, will add becoming and dressy ef fects to innuy new or partly worn gar ments As mi example may be men tioned a last season's corsage of pink silk worn by the daughter of a leading physician, which is now being made new again by au application of Ivory soap and a veiling of white chiffon. The last is plaaed riot for the purpose of concealing blemishes, for they all dlsappeirnd, hut to the end of apparent chaig j in m iterial. BLACK SKIRTS are a consequence on colored independ ent waists. Again they command at tention and shapes are as yet so little altered from last season, that those which were I hen fashionable, can be utilized, pro uinent in this line being the brocades which have been thought so choice. Despite considerations of utility however, that must prolong a demand fir separate waists and skirts, indre style attaches to entiro dresses. Tailor made gowns have a prestige all their own a id some of the most attrac tive cost uiu*-K being made up, *are in veintina cii her plain or corded. Some are sevrr-'U plain, with a line of white satin showing at each seam, but more elaborate examples have garnitures of guipure l*ee that shows to much ad vantage on -the new colors, among which gol l"ti brown, wood shades or green Hre conspicuous. JACKETS opening over rests are the regulations style for tailor ny*de gowns and really such pretty iffeets have resulted there from, that they seem a necessity. The useful, but unbecoming shades of an average walking dress, are there*/ made an offset to gay or delic»*» s> ,ks < tbat form the vest and lad"*" "•** thaß profit by beauty placing colors, placed next the f**« ««>d yet reap the advantage c'grave hues that well do battle «ith dust and mud. Dress in general, is cot as yet marked by novel, ty in outline. Round or slightly point ed eqr-*igeß, display nothing new, but the tendency for thin materials, is to rward more garniture than formerly in the way of flounces or narrow ruffles are to be shown in styles quite similar to last season and those who have gar ments left over, can readily»»utilize them. Chiffon is a feature and again it is seen in contrast to tho heaviest materia!* nr trimmings. Cloth, velvet or velutina will appear first among openings Hnd later on, numerous fancy creations in silk overlaid by lace Or passementerie or both. Dear to wo man's heart also, will be ostrich feath er boas that gently and comfortably enwrap the face, such soft embrace im parting beauty in so many instances, by means of concealment. The Marie Antoinette ruchings as well, will retain ! popularity aud deservedly so, since not only in black, but effective combina tions of color, they like feather boas, unite the useful and the aesthetic. NEW MILLINERY is seen a<; yet, only in partial glimpses but these show that both rough and | fancy straws will be almost exclusively iv favor. Shapes are very fanciful and while there will be some low crowns, the majority are to rise high and nar row. Gre.-ii is conspicuous, but per haps not more so than attractive pur Ec shades and geranium colors in iried tOi.cs, stand high on the list. Mixtures in colorings remain very bold and hish rising aigrettes, pompom-, bows cf ribbon or flowers, give the coquetry that has beeu fouud co <ap tivating Slender frirle nod cuirfoc waists with sleeves shirred to the elbow, quite be eauiing. For indoor evening wear, sash ends that always nritteh the cr>rs age and sometimes the entire drew, are widened out as they leave the waist. and trimmed all around with chiffon or lace set on full. In place of loops, they may be attached to the girdle by large buttons, hut if loops are teen. they are small and lie-flat.
